He's more intelligent than most players at his age. When he plays with Rooney and Rooney drops deep to get the ball Schneiderlin would just stand still and let Rooney try and manipulate the ball whereas I notice Davies immediately decides to vacate that area and offer another body ahead of the ball to give us options and vice versa when Rooney bombs on he slots in. If he cost £30m he'd be in the team every week.

He doesn't help himself by doing the simple things poorly at times but he's a kid and he'll learn.

But we have a midfielder in Schneiderlin who cost 24 million quid with more experience.

With the amount of shithouses he's had to play alongside it's a wonder he's progressed as far as he has..How shniderlin would ever be on a team sheet while Tom Davies is fit is a total fuckin mystery.

24...million...quid.

It goes off how much you cost these days apparently not ability.

Would be proper weird if we ended up with three 10s in the starting 11 again but actually playing well.

It's not impossible though. Good players should be able to play with each other if they know each otherís game well enough.

Klaassen was never brought in as a number 10. He was brought in to play Davies role.

Isn't Davies playing that role now though.

He is now. What if he gets injured though or loses form?



We have Sig, Rooney, Vlasic and Klaassan in the squad who have all played in the No 10 role in their career and can do so again if need be. It's the one area we don't need to be too worried about personnel until the end of the season.

Davies doesn't typically play the number 10 role. That's the point. Klaassen was brought to provide competition with Davies, not the number 10 role. He's just been lumped in with all the other number 10s we have.

The point being we have enough bodies in the squad to cover another loss of form or injury to Davies.

Just in time for the rest of modern football to leave them behind in favour of goal scoring wide men. Superb.

To be fair we have just bought one of them whose record stands up to most in that position.

Can see us going in for rashford in the summer.

I can see them only letting him go on loan which I'd be happy with. Rashford and Walcott in the same team with Rooney pulling the strings would be a pretty decent attacking unit, if we can sort out what's happening behind them.

Looks like DCL is starting to fill out finally. He needed another stone of beef to fill out his frame, next season he might be closer to what we need.

And he'll have the same hairstyle all his career.
